Surprising Benefits of Adult Circumcision in Southeast

What is circumcision?

Circumcision is a quick and simple surgical procedure that involves the removal of the foreskin covering the glans (head) of the penis. This minimally invasive procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and often allows for same-day discharge. Dr. Pollock, originator of the Pollock Technique™ circumcision, has published a study that demonstrates the efficacy of a pain management strategy. Many newborns fall asleep throughout the brief procedure. Most infants feel very little or no pain.

Adult Circumcision Benefits

There are various cultural, personal, and cosmetic benefits that can drive men to pursue adult circumcision, including improved hygiene, heightened sexual sensation, cosmetic appeal, and the opportunity to deepen cultural or religious roots.

Cultural Reasons

Circumcision has been a longstanding cultural and religious practice across many civilizations, including ancient Egyptians, Hebrews, Aztecs, the Philippines, and tribes in Africa.

  • It is one of the oldest known surgical procedures in human history.
  • For some cultures, the procedure is a rite of passage to adulthood, usually accompanied by celebrations.
  • By participating in this longstanding cultural tradition, you can deepen your roots and relationship with your culture.

Religious Reasons

For many religions, including Islam and Judaism, circumcision is a significant religious ritual and signifies the boy’s or man’s commitment to his faith.

  • Jews and Muslims continue to practice circumcision as a significant religious ritual, with roots tracing back to the Prophet Abraham. In Egypt and Eriteria, Coptic and Orthodox Christians perform the ritual regularly.
  • As a male converting to the Muslim or Jewish faith, circumcision can offer a chance to fully embrace the chosen faith and become part of a larger community and family.

Cosmetic appeal can be a major motivating factor in considering this procedure for some men and their partners as they may prefer the aesthetic appearance of a circumcised penis.

  • If a person is self-conscious about the appearance of their uncircumcised penis, it can create self-esteem problems and reflect on intimate and personal relationships with others.
  • Choosing to undergo the procedure for aesthetics can instill confidence and make the person much more comfortable in his own skin which will reflect on his relationship with himself and others.
  • Another reason for considering the procedures can be hygiene related. The foreskin can collect smegma, a buildup of dead skin cells, oils, and other debris. This buildup can cause unpleasant odors and uncircumcised males may find it challenging to clean the glans of their penis due to the foreskin, hindering proper cleaning. Removing the foreskin through circumcision can facilitate better genital hygiene.

Personal Reasons

Heightened sensation is another personal reason for circumcision that can be related to improving sexual function and pleasure.

  • The foreskin can sometimes cause discomfort or pain during sexual activity due to issues such as tightness or difficulty retracting.
  • This inconvenience can manifest when wearing condoms for example. In addition to improving comfort, research has also shown that circumcision can increase sensitivity in the penis, leading to enhanced sexual pleasure.
  • The foreskin contains nerve endings that can become desensitized over time, reducing sensitivity during sexual activity. By removing the foreskin, the penis is exposed and more responsive to touch, making sexual activity more enjoyable.

The Adult Circumcision Procedure at Gentle Procedures

Men in Canada have two adult circumcision methods available to them and they are the Pollock Technique and the Shang Ring circumcision procedure.

  • The Pollock Technique™ can be applied for the circumcision of babies, boys, and men of all ages, and consists of using a Mogen clamp under long-acting local anesthetic. This method is quite different from the plastibell procedure in that it is faster and there is no device left attached to the penis after the surgery.
  • Shang Ring circumcision is a quick, virtually painless, and bloodless procedure that provides a suture-free circumcision for men.

Making an Informed Choice

Ultimately, the decision to have a circumcision procedure comes down to cultural, personal, and cosmetic preferences. Each person should make their own decision which suits their beliefs and circumstances.
